Iceland: October 2017
Another hotel breakfast (important, given how expensive things are here!) and then off to the combination tourist trap/hot spring/James Bond villian lair, Blue Lagoon.
It's a bit too overrun and artifical to be romantic, but if you get there early, there's still plenty of quiet areas to appreciate the hot springs. A clear sunny day is probably spectacular if you can get one; I can definitely see the appeal, even if this particular visit didn't do it for me. Yet another nice meal at Lava (at Blue Lagoon), although by this time, cured fish, lamb, and root vegetables are getting a bit repetitive...
Keflavik Airport and a super uncomfortable return flight next. As pleasant (and empty) as KEF was on the way in, it was packed on the way out, and definitely shows how much air traffic has grown in Iceland thanks to cheap flights from WOW Air, Icelandair, Eurowings, Norwegian Air, Wizz Air, and others. And when the choice is between expensive, lousy food for purchase on the plane vs. expensive, not very good food at the airport... well, airport food it is!
Verdict: Iceland is a nice place to visit, but mostly if you like the outdoors. And definitely be prepared for high prices on everything while you're there.
